Bosch Software Kit Allows Integration With 3rd-Party Intrusion Panels
The new SDK facilitates integration with third-party applications, enabling the panels to work with security software offerings from other industry providers.
FAIRPORT, N.Y. — Bosch Security Systems now offers an intrusion integration software development kit (SDK) for its B and G Series control panels.
The new SDK allows for integration with third-party applications, enabling the panels to work seamlessly with security software offerings from other industry providers, according to the company.
With a reference guide, examples and code snippets, developers can connect their applications to allow monitoring and control of the Bosch panels.
Bosch B and G Series control panels offer integrated security solutions for intrusion, fire, access control and IP video with support for up to 599 points, 32 areas, 32 doors and 16 Bosch IP cameras.
With the SDK, the company says third-party applications can monitor areas, points and power and peripheral status for B and G Series systems with 50 simultaneous panel connections supported. Control of panel functions includes arming and disarming areas, resetting detectors, activating and deactivating outputs, performing diagnostic functions and more.
The intrusion integration SDK is said to make it easier for other industry providers to integrate with Bosch B and G Series intrusion control panels, fostering a broader range of solutions that support the panels.
As a result, security dealers can gain flexibility in how the panels are monitored and controlled, helping them to deliver customized solutions that combine the advanced capabilities of Bosch control panels with the software platforms that best address the security needs of end users.
Providers can gain access to the SDK by registering for Bosch’s Integration Partner Program (IPP). IPP gives developers access to software development tools to integrate Bosch products across the portfolio with third-party systems. Further details on the Bosch IPP and the intrusion integration SDK are available at ipp.boschsecurity.com.
